What Is Healthcare Ready?
Healthcare Ready is a public/private partnership designed to help support the continued provision of critical medicines to patients whose health is threatened in a severe public health emergency. Healthcare Ready was created to share information and, as appropriate, to address risks to the pharmaceutical supply chain during a severe public health emergency. Healthcare Ready is a means to support individual sectors/parties providing first-line emergency response relating to medicines only.
Healthcare Ready does not provide a mechanism or forum for ordering or delivering prescription drugs, for seeking or providing medical advice, or for coordinating or providing pharmaceutical distribution or dispensing. Healthcare Ready also does not make decisions for individual companies or sectors of the pharmaceutical supply chain. Healthcare Ready is not a public call-in center.
What Is Rx Open?
